Easy Poached Salmon
from Dr. Andrew Weil book

salmon fillets (allow 6 ounces per person)
1 carrot, sliced
1 small onion, sliced
1 stalk celery, sliced
2 slices lemon
several sprigs of parsley
1 or 2 bay leaves
salt to taste
1 cup dry white sine
juice of half a lemon

Cut the salmon fillets into individual portions.

Place in a saucepan the carrot, onion, sliced celery, lemon, parsley and bay leaves. Add the fish, cold water to cover, salt to taste, wine and lemon juice. Bring the pot to a boil, uncovered. Adjust heat to simmer and let fish cook for 5 minutes. Turn off heat and leave fish undisturbed for 10 minutes. Then remove it carefully to a serving platter; the salmon will be perfectly done. It can be served either hot or cold.
